Apologies for the W3 link. Lol.

Here are the Italian software charts.

For real this time.

Christopher1258d ago

Don't think they're talking software sales, but market share for 8th generation consoles.

Transistor1258d ago (Edited 1258d ago )

Neither are close, if that's the comment you were responding to.

But the software data is always good to get the whole picture, in my opinion.

Edit: I'm not going to post weeks worth of numbers. If you want numbers for longer go to the PAL Charts on NeoGaf. I'm not going to post 50 links in 1 comment.

Christopher1258d ago (Edited 1258d ago )

How can you say neither are close when Sony, who has the numbers, say they are and all you can provide are software numbers from two weeks?

Transistor1258d ago (Edited 1258d ago )

OK, scroll down to see other EU countries.

Did you think I was making this up?

Italy is a Tier 1 country, Tier 2 countries the hardware and software sales are even more lopsided.

Christopher1258d ago (Edited 1258d ago )

Transistor, nothing you're showing has anything to do with hardware market share or proving the percentage of it... It's just sales by week. Sans any actual numbers, just top 10 rankings.

Tier 1 or Tier 2... software sales doesn't do anything to support the claim that it's either more or less than 70%.

xb1 and wii u mess up so bad that ps4 is killing the competition. sony listen to their fan.. well done sony.

DonkeyDoner1258d ago

if they listen to us this game will release, sequel to Wild Arms, Legend of Dragoon,arc the lad, medievil, syphon filter, also faster development for the last guardian but nope they prefer give us game like the order

OUROSMAG1258d ago

They gave us the order cause the studio that developed the order approached SONY. They cannot demand a studio make a certain game. If the studios that produce those particular games see fit to make them they will..

KwietStorm1258d ago

That's not exactly how it works..

WCxAlchemist1258d ago (Edited 1258d ago )

Curious exactly how big is the gaming market in italy?

Edit: italy total population is at 61 million lets say 10% of those are console gamers 10% is a bit high but this is just for an ball park figure so 10% comes out to roughly 6mill and of that 6mill Sony owns roughly 70% of that market share which comes out to roughly 4million

4million sounds alot smaller when compared to header "Ps4 has 70% of next gen market in italy" but italy is a big reason why there ahead of xbox in total sales worldwide go figure. Stand up and be proud italy 2day is your day LoL

Spotie1258d ago

Does it matter how big the gaming market in Italy is?

You could ask that question about every market in the world, but it's irrelevant because every one of them has the PS4 out in front.

kraenk121258d ago

It's pretty much how it looks everywhere in Europe and the European market is comparable to the U.S. one. It's 4:1 here in Germany as well. Except for the UK PS4 wins at a rate of 3:1 to 4:1 in Europe.

DrumBeat1258d ago

There's no stopping the PS4.
